On March 7, 2020, I wrote the following in my journal:
I worry that there are a bunch of people at work making decisions based on the assumption that things will get better relatively soon. I don't think they will. I'm not sure this coronavirus thing is a rough patch we just need to get through; I think it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better, and that the consequences will be far-ranging.
Oh, how I wish I had been wrong.
